Thanks for filling us in. This is something I plan to do in the near future, well try to do. The stencil information is great, I wasn't sure how to pull that off. I want to make things to mark personal belongings and unit information and that looks like the way to do it. Great job

Quite simple and effective. Its prove that it's not necessary complicate things to have an smooth finish.

Sounds awesome. :-) That's something I'd love to do but don't have the time. Once when I was looking for a stencil font on Microsoft Word. I found that Futurist Stencil and Stencil Sans look very good if you are not willing to pay $20. I think that the font Lance suggested is awesome, but I know I'm not willing to pay $20. Just an idea. I don't mean to say that Lance's idea is bad either.

Question on the stencil. Has it ever changed between WWII and now. I am wondering if I would have to get one for different time periods to be accurate. Its a very small detail but I would be intrested in knowing if anyone does know.

Thanks. Lance! It sounds great. I'm certainly going to check out the Micromark site. For those of us who build the less common variants this is a step forward. Stencil Power for the little guys!!! Thanks, again, JOCK
